The UPS Worldport in Louisville, Ky., is the center of the company's international shipping operations. It's the size of 90 football fields, sorts 350,000 packages an hour and contributes 20,000 jobs to the local economy. We took a peek inside their busiest shift: 11p.m. to 3a.m. a week before Christmas.

Forgot.. You work for two minorities if you are white and load trucks, because they are slowwwww so UPS bosses use you'Whitey's as they just pretend they working but they slack off etc, I'm no racist it's vice versa.. Worked with all people everywhere and didn't had that pretty much problem. But UPS heyyy you are majority so you are 'privledged' as they say, work for 3 people be used as a tool.

Where is the footage of people running around throwing, kicking, sliding, dragging, and punching packages across the hub? This looks to pristine it must have been staged and edited!

+Joseph WhitlowNot true. UPS is pretty great for me since my main job is computer programming so I sit all day long getting no exercise. The time I work at UPS is close to the time I spent at the gym before, only this time I get paid. It would suck if UPS was my main job though.

I got fed up with UPS bullshit so I applied for a job there to see, what actually happens behind the close door. OMG! Well... folks... these people don't care about your packages. Most of my time, I have to move around fast but most of packages that I handle were Television, Monitors, Computers, Labtops, and anything that value. I have to move fast but also be careful I don't want to smash them but I got fired because I wasn't throwing the boxes like everyone else were doing. Motherfuka.... you want me to throw something like computers and monitors?!?! That's stupid..., no wonder when I bought a monitor from online and when UPS faggots brought it my house, it was all smashed. Now on, I only choose FedEx or Canada Post. At least, these guys do their job.

Jessica Herrera (8 days ago)
lmao it's true. they just care about those boxes getting out. I work here, and I was literally taught the "hand to surface" for the first day, but then my mentor started encouraging me to knocked down the box walls and let them fall on the belt and floor. I am constantly pressured to do this, ups does not give a shit about your boxes especially their package handlers (me). They are now pressuring me to work faster, get a trailer emptied less than an hr, carry over 70 pounds wide boxes to converter belts that are at length to my shoulders (even tho I am 5 foot, and weigh 115), hold in my pee, and work longer and basically get ready for peak season..or I might be one of the new hires that gets fired. It sucks, and I felt bad yesterday because I actually destroyed a box with family photos...it's terrible...and it's been three weeks for me :/ They really need to change the way they treat people and boxes
RadSavage - WingsOfRedemption Hunter (2 months ago)
Mike Castillo bitch fuck you. I work package handler for FedEx and we don’t throw boxes. The fucking machine send em all down at once and they break. If we threw boxes in the truck they’d take up so much room they won’t get shipped I outta spit in your faces
